Regulation for capping the number of school children in van

This petition had 19 supporters

The parents have to hire van for their children for various reasons such as school bus does not operate in the locality they stay, they are unable to afford the charges for school bus, etc.

Recently a school van overturned due to rash driving of driver at Vadodara which was also captured by a CCTV camera. Apart from rash driving, the reason for such incidents is due to the fact that the van operators stuff the children beyond the available seating capacity. This not only causes high discomfort for the kids but also poses a big risk of accident. 

Concerned Authorities are requested to pass the rules/regulations to restrict the number of school children per van a van operator can accommodate based on the capacity of vehicle. This is very critical in view of adamant van operators who do not listen to requests of the parents.
